Ups and downs of Australian women's match racing Olympic campaign:-
* The London Games was the first Olympics to feature match racing. The discipline involves two six-metre Elliott keelboats racing against each other over a short course. There were 12 crews involved at Weymouth and each sailed against each other in a preliminary round-robin format. The top eight progressed to the knock-out stages.
* Olivia Price and her crew won all 11 of their round-robin races, including against highly-ranked America and Great Britain.
* They defeated the Netherlands in the quarter final.
* The semi-final against Finland was shortened because of light winds in Weymouth Bay. Australia won the first race and Finland took the second. Australia took the third, decisive race in a thrilling photo finish, setting up a final clash against Spain.
* The trio went two-one down in the best-of-five final after losing skipper Olivia Price out the boat in race three. They regrouped to take race four. But a penalty for infringing the Spanish ruined their hopes of winning the final race and the Australians had to settle for the silver medal.
